Catching the fencing bug during his freshman year on his high school team, Coach Eric Kirberger has not looked back. With more than a decade of fencing and coaching experience, Eric has an impressive resume of achievements and credentials. Training under an internationally well known and highly revered fencing maestro Eric fenced his way onto the national scene to become one of the top twenty sabre fencers in the cadet category.
A natural and gifted teacher, Eric draws upon his multi-faceted fencing experiences and has translated his passion for the sport into an impressive coaching career. Eric has coached in school settings and in respected NJ fencing clubs. He is a certified part-time sub in the township of Long Hill meaning he has passed an extensive security check by the state of New Jersey. Kids Can Fence is proud that Coach Kirberger is our lead coach.
